    Useful Information

    Best Time for Everest Expedition

    The Everest Expedition requires fighting against all odds, and obstacles to arrive at the top of the highest mountain in the world. However, the outstanding and majestic views you see during your trip is certainly enough to attract people for this journey. 

    The views along with the new and unique culture and lifestyle of the area attract the climbers to Everest Expedition. One can enjoy these perfect awestruck views only when they travel at the right time. As they say, being in the right place at the right time is very important. Similarly being a part of this trip at the right time is just as important.

    The best time for the Mount Everest expedition is spring. Spring season falls through the months of March to May. The right temperature, weather, and the views make it a beautiful time for Mount Everest Expedition. Spring is the time for new beginnings, so you can begin your trip in spring to get the beautiful views of the mountains which can be seen clearly. 

    Also, the weather is mostly clear and the temperature favorable for the climb. Spring season is mostly clear, so you don't have to worry about rain jeopardizing our climbing session.

    The Autumn season is also just as good. With favorable temperature and weather, there is not much you can complain about in the autumn season. The nights may be cold but you can prepare for that with proper warm clothing and gears. The views are just as phenomenal during this season.

    The summer season however receives a lot of rain making it not so suitable for mountain climbing. Also, the winter season is too cold for you to be cruising around in such high altitudes. So it is better to stick to the two best seasons for the Everest expedition.

    Everest Expedition Difficulties

    High Altitudes and Lack of Oxygen

    Climbing to the top of the Everest mountain means getting to an incredible altitude of 8848 meters. This is an excruciatingly high altitude for anyone and especially for people who live in lower regions. The main difficulty with the high altitude is the lack of oxygen. As you head higher in elevation and altitude, the air pressure slowly decreases. This results in low oxygen. You will be carrying oxygen cylinders during your climb, but be careful to use it wisely. 

    Altitude Sickness

    As stated before, you will be reaching an all-time high 8848 meters. The altitude may sound thrilling, but it can get you some serious symptoms if you are not careful. Reaching the top, you may be having summit fever and want to take a few more stops before stopping for the day. But proper acclimatizing and rest is needed for you to survive the altitude sickness that comes with the thrill of high altitudes. 

    Technical Climb and Training

    Everest expedition is not a simple and easy climb. There are many technical sections and a long climbing period to get to the summit of the peak. So you will need essential technical training to complete this climb. You will be accompanied by professional guides but you will still need some proper training for the technical climb.

    Temperature

    As you are at an extremely high altitude, not to mention in the coldest regions, the temperature is extremely low. If you are not careful you may even get frostbites. So make sure to dress carefully and stay warm throughout your trip. Be well prepared for your expedition. 

    Avalanche

    You may not meet an avalanche in the Everest region. However, it is highly possible based on the weather. If not an avalanche, there is always a chance of rocks and ice blocks falling from the sky. Be careful on your way and make sure to take safety precautions regardless of how normal and quiet the situation may look.

    Everest Expedition Cost

    There are many routes and itineraries for Everest expeditions out there. Also, the cost of the Everest expedition highly depends on the services you want and use. However, the standard 63 days Everest expedition costs around USD 35000 per person. 

    This includes all the transportation costs throughout the expedition along with the staff and the food and accommodation throughout the trip. The Everest Expedition cost however does not cover the personal costs that may occur during the expedition like your personal food and drinks or other international flight fares.
